chocolate sorbet

we’re finally unpacking wedding presents…n started to use them.  then i saw this…so i must try it…i didnt register an ice cream maker cuz it’s not something that i thought i would use often…but after this first try…i think i’ll be making frozen desserts every day!!!  it’s SO GOOD!!!  this recipe is perfect since i’m lactose intolerant….yummy

ingredients

2 1/4 cups (555ml) water
1 cup (200g) sugar
3/4 (75g) unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
pinch of salt
6 ounces (170 g) bittersweet chocolate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

any baker knows…it’s more accurate to measure by weight than volume…so i registered a food scale n i m in LOVE with it…

thanx cathy!!!

whisk 1 1/2 cups of water, sugar, cocao powder, and salt, bring to a boil while whisking and continue after boil for 45 seconds.  it will bubble up quite a bit.

remove from heat and stir in chocolate until it melts then add in vanilla extract and the remaing water. then blend it for 15seconds…i used the hand blender i got…thanx deanna!  chill the mixture

pour into the ice cream maker for about 25mins…thanx anna!

it wasn’t too firm when removed so chill the mixture for another couple of hours…we chilled for overnight and it was nice n hard.  we have a freezer that came with the house in the basement…n that thing is COLD!!!  the sorbet came out rock solid!!!

it was DECADENT!!!  the only description i have is it’s like a frozen brownie…since i used really rich chocolate…the sorbet came out super rich…n it was extremely smooth…so good…
